As I told Sky News today, the Tory Government’s unfair tax rise on working people won’t fix social care and won’t clear the NHS backlog.
Under Boris Johnson’s plans, a landlord renting out dozens of properties won’t pay a penny more, but their tenants, in work, will face tax rises of hundreds of pounds a year. And a care worker earning minimum wage doesn’t get a pay rise under this plan, but does get a tax rise.
I will not vote to impose an unfair tax on working people in my constituency and across the country. Those with the broadest shoulders ought to be paying their fair share first.
